Maxim Kontsevich (IHES, U of M) is one of the leading geometers of our time. His main mathematical contributions: Homological Mirror Symmetry, the proof of Witten's conjecture, the proof of Deligne's conjecture and deformation and quantization have revolutionized the use of abstract category theory and homological algebra in theoretical physics.

He received a Fields Medal in 1998 at the 23rd International Congress of Mathematicians in Berlin, and last year he won the Crafoord Prize. He is a member of the French Academy of Sciences and of Legion d'Honneur.
